Cape Cod, you slay me. I keep falling harder and harder in love with this classic location and this wedding from The Casual Gourmet has so perfectly captured the spirit of the Cape that I’ve now become borderline obsessed. The timeless Americana color palette and the creatively nautical theme are just the beginning of some of the most adorable details in this wedding at the Nauticus Marina. And Hike Photography has captured them all in the gallery right here.
From the Bride… Cape Cod is, hands-down, my favorite place in the world. Growing up, my family spent every summer there, and it has always been my dream wedding destination. Thankfully, I married the most selfless man who wanted to make my dream come true; Bobby knew from the moment we got engaged that we would most likely be getting married on the Cape. My sister and brother-in-law got married on the Cape three years before us and had some incredible vendors that we were able to use for our special day! Immediately after Bobby proposed, my parents sprang into action and contacted the caterer, venue, band and florist and got our wedding planning ball rolling. As coordinators of the chaos, my mom and dad deserve most of the wedding planning credit!
Our venue was breathtaking and allowed for us to keep everything else very simple, but with a nautical twist. Food is important to both Bobby and me, and since we were asking people to travel from our home state of Texas (and from all over the US), we wanted our guests to have authentic East Coast cuisine. Seafood was the theme! Our guests are still talking about the clam chowder shooters and the mini lobster club sandwiches! The food, the music (Motown oldies!), the bright flowers, and the overall décor felt very us, and we were so thankful to everyone who helped make it such a memorable day. Our amazing photographer even managed to capture our fits of laughter in addition to our emotional moments during the gorgeous sunset. Surrounded by our families and great friends, our wedding day was truly more special than we could have ever imagined!
